If you would like a dynamic, creative and engaging speaker for your event or conference, I am confident I can meet your needs. I have 31 years experience teaching, lecturing, presenting and leading workshops in a number of areas. Utilizing the inspiring Napkin Dad story and the Absorbent Ideas I have drawn and written about for many years, I can customize the presentation to meet the needs of your group in terms of time and content.
See below for information on topics and audiences I have addressed in the past with a selection of audience responses.
